This is what you should have for breakfast, according to Blake

According to the Olympic Legend, oats are the perfect breakfast to eat. Notably, Blake says, oats are the perfect food to consume both before and after running.

He posted a tweet sharing the benefits of this meal.

Oatmeal is one of the best choices for breakfast, for training, and even for one’s post-run intake. They are easily digestible and allow one to train harder. Apart from all these benefits, it also helps one to recover from workouts and races faster.
